This one has, I think, no great photographic merit other than being, hopefully, a reasonable documentary of what can only be described as one of nature's wonders.
Every October, about 35,000 Barnacle Geese arrive for wintering on the coast of the Solway Firth in south west Scotland. They have just completed a 2,000 mile, 40/50 hour flight from the Svarlbard Islands, about which the visitnorway.com website says, "The Svalbard Islands are located in the Arctic Ocean, halfway between Norway and the North Pole. Here you will find untouched arctic wilderness."
On the day we were at the RSPB reserve at Mersehead about, I estimate, 5,000 decided to arrive. An amazing site.
